I was looking into the privacy implications faced by online merchants selling goods from websites, accepting Monero. I'm not sure whether I want to convert to fiat automatically through Globee or take Monero and change through an exchange myself.
I myself use Windows 10 on a PC, so would need something compatible.
My prime concerns are anonymity and privacy and my website would need to take payments and show confirmations to clients who would be paying via Monero. No other crypto or payment method would be used.
My queries are:
Using Globee sounds convenient. Is it safe, I mean by do they log IPs and stuff if they convert to fiat?
Is it more private to use the Globee API to make transactions?
Is it more private to use the API? And can the API be used to send Monero to a wallet only, or can it be automatically exchanged into fiat first?
Does the latest version of the Monero GUI contain Tor support, built-in, as in Whonix or Tails?
I was thinking of using the Monero GUI but what is the difference between that and using the
monerod, is it relevant to me if i take payments from my website?
